James SA Corey is the nom de plume of two writers, one of whom is George RR Martin’s assistant. It’s set in the near future, as man starts to populate and mine the other planets and asteroids in our solar system, resulting in the fractioning and division of the human race.
SF The writing is sharp and fresh, the characters compelling. I’d like the book even more if it were as good as the amazing TV series based on the books. I don’t often get to say that.
Mosley is one of my favourite authors. He seldom tells a story that isn’t about social inequity and man’s inhumanity to man. But he never forgets the story, which rises above all. Combined with memorable characters and a fine flourish in manipulating the English language, he is almost always worth reading.
This one is a melange, YA with historical fiction, the supernatural, aliens and love in many forms.
